Is this tournament happening? Raleigh Charter is not able to come, but I was wondering if anyone else was committed. I hadn't heard anything recently.

There are data missing, too. The Team Detail page is a 404.

Sorry to anyone confused by the SQBS report. I am rather inexperienced in using SQBS as a scorekeeping program; however, I have learned much from this tournament. The oversights made in this tournament will not happen in a future tournament.

We had two initial round robins of 8 teams and 7 teams, and we rebracketed into playoff brackets of 3 brackets of 4 teams and 1 bracket of 3 team. The winner of the top playoff bracket was cave spring.

Unfortunately, I did not have the foresight to create a new tournament page for the playoff rounds, so the data you see uploaded is the amalgamated scores from both the prelims and playoffs.

This has been corrected.

Again, I apologize for the mistakes/errors in scorekeeping; however, if you still have any questions or advice, please feel free to contact me.
